R27 wrote:I'd like to point out that Tommy Pham is tied for the team lead at 14 home runs this season and Randal Grichuk has 13. Both spent a month in Memphis.

DeJong has 12 and spent the better part of two months there too.


Which begs the question. Why the heck does John Mabry still have a job?

Man I hope the bullpen doesn't crap the bed again.

Re: Game 98: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/23/17, 7:08 pm

That's it exactly. Matheny has a script and will not deviate from the script.There is no outside the box thinking, no creativity whatsoever. Every saber stat shows that Oh isn't close to the same pitcher he was last year, yet he keeps running the guy out there. Rosie, has had some brain farts and so...

Re: Game 98: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/23/17, 7:08 pm

Well if you look at the number of games this team has lost in which they've had a lead in or after the 8th inning that's one measure. This week alone, they've lost four games in that situation. They have a pythagorean W/L of 51-47 and they have a +20 run differential. Unfortunately, they have a reco...

Re: Game 98: Cardinals @ Cubs, 7/23/17, 7:08 pm

I agree with you on this. Matheny has done a terrible job of managing the resources given to him. Yes, there have been some struggles on the part of some of the players; but the fact is, this team should be better than they are. He doesn't appear to hold anyone that has a long term deal accountable,...

This article pretty much sums it up. This team is a mess and has been an under achiever under Matheny.

Re: Game 91: Cardinals @ Pirates, 7/16/17, 12:35 pm

Cecil got a chance to be closer in Toronto and stunk it up there too. Rosenthal and Oh can't be trusted either. Three highest paid relievers in the Cardinals pen can't be trusted to save a game. And I doubt we can put Siegrist on that list either at #4. Meanwhile Tuivailala has spent three or four ...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

One of two things are at play regarding Grichuk. Either the big league hitting instructors have no idea how to coach him, or he's a modern day, more athletic version of Mike Laga. Either option is not good. It's very disappointing I was hoping he'd be able to turn things around. I don't know how MM ...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

I don't think this team is significantly worse if you remove Carpenter from the equation. If we were an AL team, I could live with him. But since he offers nothing defensively, and he has no speed, he doesn't seem irreplaceable to me. If he was a no doubt 30+ homer a year guy that would be one thing...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

I think Mo will act as a very responsive sounding board to Girsch at the deadline. its going to be curious to see what direction they take regarding Lynn and Oh. I think there is a tremendous market for both. A market that should be able to bring back some much needed, corner infield or outfield dep...

Re: Official 2017 Cardinals News Thread

Piscotty has a long term deal like Wong. Piscitty has been terrible this season in every aspect of the game. Yes, he has the situation with his Mom. But as a professional, he's gotta figure out a way to compartmentalize. If it were my call, I'd ship Piscotty to Memphis so he can get his stuff togeth...

Piscotty = Craig

Disappointing bust. Bad defense, bad baserunning, bad bat.

Re: Game 68: Cardinals @ Orioles, 6/18/17, 12:35 pm

Apparently Matheny was on KMOX this morning giving all sorts of excuses for the team's poor play. Shadows and Waino taking responsibility when it isn't his fault. Wow... The lack of accountability is killing this team. The bogus excuses and the half hearted pep talks aren't enough. Some of these gu...

Re: Game 63: Brewers @ Cardinals, 6/13/17, 7:15

It's stunning! Matt Carpenter is a totally different player when he's hiring lead off versus any place else in the order. I think they need to have him leading off from now until the end of his contract.
